A Good Read
After taking a dyeing class recently I started reading up on different pigments and dyes, and ended up reading an absolutely terrific book. Color: A Natural History of the Palette by Victoria Finlay. It's a cross between a history of pigment & dyeing and an armchair adventure. The chapters are organized by color, and off the author goes around the world in search of the traditional source.
